While everyone was waiting a new album from our English Floyd fans, its some kind of best off that I received instead. Most of the versions are different and there are some new (or unreleased before) tracks.

I really enjoyed the orchestral version of The Silent Enigma and when I say orchestral : I mean it as the songs really is performed by an orchestra. Otherwise the new tracks are very pleasant. The song J'Fait Une Promesse is performed with young girl who's French is so approximate as if I was trying to sing in Sanskrit.

Very interesting but strange version of Angelica, recorded in Budabest in 1997 which such a bad sound that anyone who'd have done it better with a recorder... At least we have the magnificient Eternity and the superb accoustic version of Far Away to bring the overall up a bit. The video clip of Hope is also containing in the CD as a bonus.

A disk that could have been excellent but which is a bit wasted by the selection of certain tracks. So what's left to do now is to wait for a "true" new album.
